First impression: Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel By Fran

First impression: Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel A Target (pronounced Tarjay) has come into my area. By my area I mean it’s just over 2 hours away from where I live.  We travel to the city once, sometimes twice, a month so each time we go I’m exploring the beauty department a bit more.  This last trip I stood in awe at the nail polish section…..choirs of nail-polishy angels could be heard as I stood  mouth gaping.  I have seen lots of YouTube beauty gurus using Sinful Colors nail polish and this was the first time I had ever been able to buy them. So I did.   I got 5 Frantastic colours. From left to right: Glass Pink, Innocent, Black on Black, Hazard, Let’s Talk (do you like my custom backdrop? it’s all I had at 4 a.m.) All of […]

My May Loot Crate! By Denise

I got my Loot Crate in the mail! Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service for anyone who likes to game, to collect nifty products and to fill their rooms with toys from different games and shows! I joined the Canadian pilot program and so far it has been a fun ride! The box does not take long to get to me at all. Maximum 2 weeks as compared to 3-4 weeks for beauty boxes. Well let’s get on with the box, shall we? Like many boxes, it comes with a product card and a little summary of this month’s theme. I also got a membership card with this box. Something that is pretty unique! The first items were these crazy emotions stickers and a DIY Ironman paper figurine puzzle for me to put together. I will get right to […]

Swap from France! By Denise

I got my swap package from Millie! I’m so excited for this package! I have never tried anything from France before : )    The box is filled with stuff!!  I wanted to rip all the paper off but I controlled myself and slowly undid everything with a pair of scissors and a lot of patience. Haha.    Look how pretty everything is wrapped! I love the wrapping paper Millie! First thing in the box was this BEAUTY faux leather bag. It’s super adorable! Inside were these adorable products! There was a cleansing water, a lavender pillow spray (for sleeping better at night), a cologne, lip balm and hand cream! I finally get to try Le Couvent des Minimes! Thank you so much! There was also a match book  nail file and this adorable orange pouch! I will put my […]

??? Mystery Swap ??? By Denise

Who is this package from? While picking up Maria’s swap package, this also came in for me. The name was hidden so I didn’t know what it is or who it is from! Then I started to think… Oh right! A while ago, I participated in a mystery swap (conducted by a lovely girl who I taught math to and learned some Swedish while I was at it) and this was my mystery parcel from a generous girl in the UK! Look at all the stuff! Totally loving the skin care products! Everything was wrapped so neatly 🙂 There was a letter in the box. Of course I had to open that first! The paper is so cute! It’s the Union Jack in floral designs! Cuteness overload!! The tubey skin care products. Although one is leaking as I was taking […]
